You got out some cardboard and took off the little bits and pieces?

That thing has heavy pieces too.

I have a feeling that somewhere off in a corner of the shop, that he never photographs is several 55 gallon drums of Oliver Green paint.

Man, I just paint whatever colour I got left over from the last job.

Last job come to think of it I've got 3 gallons of puke green paint I can't get rid of. It's latex though. You may need a few coats.

Re: 1921 American #1 "Buzz" 16 Jointer Restoration.


Well,
Most of the parts are off and they are going to sandblasted in the middle of week. I think this one is going to come out rather nice... a lot of the parts are going to be a chrome buff... it's a lot of work but well worth it to me. I took the height adjustment ships wheel off and put it on the scale in my shop 42 lbs- chrome buffing the wheel and the spokes will be Olive green to match the body. The unique aspect about this jointer is that it has a cam bearing on both glides of the out-feed wedge and when you turn the crank it drops the end of the table slightly depending on how far you crank the handle, for hallow glue joint application when jointing boards. Look forward to getting back on the American.. It's coming along......

Re: 1921 American #1 "Buzz" 16 Jointer Restoration.


As promised Meathead!!!

I will throw up some more pictures as this progresses ... basically just the parts as I had before other than the captains wheel and the Gib's for the cutters. That height adjustment captains wheel is 24" in diameter and the circular wheel rim is 1-1/2" in diameter. I probably won't get to the sandblasting until Thursday. I'll be disassembling the tables (in-out feed) the wedge beds,crank adjustment assemblies,cutter head,bearing assembly,motor & bracket (that's going under the belly) and the legs - basically everything that is bolted on. And then the fun begins...

Re: 1921 American #1 "Buzz" 16 Jointer Restoration.


OK,
next phase is now completed - dismantling: My buddy Greg and I tore her down today and while we were disassembling I realized that this has not been taken apart since 1922- just to cool thinking about it.... And the leg bolts where on tight, I had to get the pipe on the end of the 1/2" ratchet...it broke free... thank god!
What is interesting about this machinery that was made back in 1922 is they would cast the pieces and then store them for 1 to 2 years. There was no annealing process back then and to relieve the stress out of the iron they would sit (in storage) until they were "seasoned" and the stress was released from the entire cast. Then they would perform the machining on all the cast pieces. Now they anneal casts pieces of machinery , at least here in the US, but not overseas...
Anyways,
Everything came off and is all marked what goes where. The next phase is to send some of the parts off to be chromed, ie Captains wheel , out feed wheel /gib brackets/bow adjustment lever/ bolts -etc,etc, anything that is mechanically fastened - including the bearing housings- (certain portions)
I have to look what it's going to run to have the tables/fence blanchard ground - more than likely, they are getting done but I may have to do it in stages depending on the costs. The motor is gone, looking for a leason from 1940-50 3-5hp and that will be swung in the belly of the jointer on a knuckle lift assembly plate with pillow blocks, similar to the Oliver 20C setup.
The insides of her are black as can be from oxidation- has never met an HVLP gun,,,, not yet...
